We have always had a pleasant experience at The Sands Motel, with both the staff and the motel itself. This is our go-to place to stay in Montauk. We stayed multiple times throughout the year. Great location and great views!!! Looking forward to this summer's get away!!!

This is definitely my go to place in Montauk. The location is perfect. The rooms are all redone and beautiful - each with your own deck and and spectacular view of the ocean!! Diane was very nice (just like last time) and i met her niece on this visit - who was also very nice!! Will be back again before...

For the 29th year in a row we spent a wonderful August week at the Sands Motel in Montauk. The location, right across the road from the beach, the amenities - pool, beach supplies, great efficiency rooms, the hard-working staff who keep the motel spotlessly clean which must be very difficult in a beach community with all the outdoors being...

This place was great all around. Andrea was a pleasure while booking and a check-in giving great tips where to go and what to do. Her mother wasn't exactly "cheery" all the time, but I'll forfeit that for the low cost of this place. Everything was clean and the location is perfect. Close to town and right on the beach....

Spent 4 nights in August with my wife and kids, and 3 nights this past weekend with my friends for a fishing trip.. Both trips were perfect. Hotel rooms were Newley renovated, clean and well decorated, and the staff was very accommodating.. Views of the ocean and lake with decks on both sides.. Walking distance to town, great restaurants, bars,...

We were thankful to get 2 rooms with double beds as last minute travelers for a 2 night stay at Montauk. First the good - great location - across the street from the beach and around the corner from town. So you don't need to use your car much. The 2nd story room was better than the 1st floor, which...

Dear dixielil, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay.

My friend and I stayed overnight and would definitely recommend and return. They were able to let us into our room earlier than expected, which was a big plus since there weren't places available to change into a bathing suit after a long drive. The room was very clean and comfortable, and everything was in working order. The woman at...

They definitely don't make you feel welcome. After spending 600 dollars for 2 nights in a dumpy room with a water stained ceiling they could at least be a little friendly. The receptionist is rude, unwelcoming, aggressive, and out and out nasty with the personality of a military tank. Her daughter who works there is from the same mold. I...

Dear John F., So sorry for your unhappiness. We strive to make everyone welcome. In researching your reservation and name association it may have something to do with additional, unregistered guests trying to take advantage of using our property, parking their cars etc. As you may remember, House Rules are signed when you register strictly prohibiting anyone who is not...

This place is a total dump, and the staff is rude and angry. I expected much more given the high price tag for a motel. I think they need to charge high rates during the summer months, as they're probably empty most of the rest of the year. So those of us that go in the summertime get jousted. Expensive...
